Additional information

To distinguish it from the FIN4B licence, the background print on the front of the FIN4C features the words "driving licence" in the languages of the countries that joined the EU in 2004. The front of the licence includes the AKE logo in OVI print.

The right to drive a T-class vehicle is included in all other classes except in M/AM-class. Class T is not recorded on the licence if other vehicle classes that include T are already recorded. It may only be recorded on the licence if the holder has separately passed a class T driving test.

The first category B licence was issued for 2 years. After 2 years, the next category B licence was issued until the holder reached 70.
